That's not true - you can get Hyperion ROMs too.Gazzmaniac wrote:The only way to get a legal classic rom without paying Colanto is by copying it from an Amiga.
I have a physical Hyperion 3.1 ROM in my Amiga 2000 right now.
FYI - I had this issue with the set of A3k ROMs I picked up a while back. I had other unrelated hardware issues so put off dealing with it. In the meantime, Cloanto added this as a known issue that has been corrected, and after I contacted them a replacement set is being shipped to me.robdaemon wrote:I bought a physical 3.X ROM from them for my Amiga 2000. I can't use my floppy drive with that ROM installed - every floppy errors out.
Can you link me to the court evidence? I would like to read this.. Or, more precise, I would like my lawyer girlfriend to do so and explain it to medalek wrote:if you actually read the court evidence in the Cloanto v Hyperion case you can see that Hyperion are acting like children and essentially stealing the market from Cloanto - and have been doing this for many years.
I'd put it this way: It's simply [bad] what Cloanto is currently
doing to Hyperion. Hyperion made a new OS, and Cloanto is attempting to
keep that from the community.
Amiga is about makers, and Hyperion is a maker. Cloanto is selling GPL'd
software that others have written for free.
